Give Anthropology students a life-changing field study experience in Greece!
Our Summer Field School in Crete is the only field research program allowing undergraduate Anthropology students this wonderful opportunity to study with those earning advanced degrees. Eight students will spend three weeks in Greece and gain hands-on experience in excavation, recovery and study of the human skeletal remains at the burial ground of Orthi Petra, which in 2009 was distinguished as one of Archaeology’s Top 10 Global Discoveries. They will also study human ecology and the dynamics of village and city life, local cuisine is sampled, visit museums and archaeological sites from Minoan to medieval periods, and attend cultural events in the city of Rethymnon including art exhibits, musical and theater performances.
As you can imagine, many students simply can’t afford to attend this incredible course.
Even our best efforts to keep the cost of tuition, airfare, accommodations, meals and more such as access to the site, etc. to a minimum, it still costs approximately $6,000 per student to join the trip.
However, YOU can make this invaluable field research opportunity a reality for students with your gift today of:
$10 supplies 7 water bottles for students at the excavation site
$25 covers draft supplies for technical drawing at the site
